Will BJP-MNS come together for upcoming BMC polls?by Suraj V. Digital Marketing (sr. SEO Expert)
As the upcoming Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) elections are coming nearer, all the political parties are gearing up to fight the polls.
However, a recent meeting between the state Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Chandrakant Patil and Maharashtra Navnirman Sena founder Raj Thackeray at Nashik has sparked speculation about both joining hands for the BMC elections to be held in 2022.
In addition, Former finance minister and veteran BJP leader Sudhir Mungantiwar, on Monday, said he had received a call from the MNS chief and he will meet him soon.
In an interview with a news channel, Mungantiwar said that if BJP and MNS form an alliance, what is wrong with it? If like-minded parties are coming together, what is wrong with that? In the future, anyone can leave any party and/or come together.
Earlier, both the parties had denied an alliance but informally indicated that they are not averse to tie up in a bid to defeat Shiv Sena, which has been ruling BMC for over 25 years.
BJP and Shiv Sena fought the elections held in 2017 separately despite sharing power in the state. Later, BJP pulled out of the Mayoral poll, which paved the way for Shiv Sena to win it comfortably.
